EVICT hybrid seminar on access to housing

In this academic year (22/23), the EVICT project will organize a series of hybrid seminars on the different aspects of the right to housing: 1) access to housing; 2) rights in the home; and 3) exit rights.

The first seminar of this series is on access to housing, with Dr. Roxani Fragkou, Dr. Andrei Quintiá Pastrana, and Stefan van Tongeren, LLM. Each of the speakers will address the obstacles and barriers certain groups and people face on their road to adequate housing: asylum seekers, ex-offenders, and obstacles because of the digitalization of administrative procedures. Central in each of these presentations is the role of the international right to housing.


4:00 Opening by Michelle Bruijn
4:05 Talk by Roxani Fragkou – Access to housing for asylum seekers and beneficiaries of international protection in the EU: myth or reality?
4:20 Talk by Stefan van Tongeren – Finding housing after prison: closed doors and windows of opportunity
4:35 Talk by Andrei Quintiá Pastrana – A right in the cloud: emerging digital obstacles in the access to housing
4:50 Discussion between the speakers
5:05 General Q&A
5:30 Closing remarks by Michelle Bruijn

The seminar is in a hybrid format where the speakers are present onsite. Attendance is possible online. There will be moderators present to monitor the online chat, and ensure that the Q&A runs smoothly.

The seminar is held on November 17th, 2022 from 4:00 PM CET till 5:35 PM CET (Amsterdam/Berlin/Paris, UTC+01:00).
